A step change in seismic imaging
a step change in seismic imaging
The biggest issues facing oil and gas companies is how much hydrocarbon is there, where it is and where to drill. Key to these questions and decisions is obtaining the best possible seismic image; the most important step in this process being the creation of the most accurate seismic velocity field. These are fundamental inputs into risk assessment, volumetrics, reservoir modelling and drilling location decisions.
S-CUBE revolutionises velocity field definition by automatically deriving the most detailed velocity field in the industry. It supplants hand velocity picking and interpretation based tomography, considerably speeding up the process and providing a much superior velocity model. It is also a step-change from conventional Full Wave Inversion since our patented technologies mean we can start our processing with no starting model assumptions.
The detailed velocity model then feeds into the seismic image processing to provide a best in class seismic image. The resulting numerical cubes form the basis of any acreage appraisal by highlighting reservoir configurations and discriminating between porous and non-porous rock formations in geologically complex settings such as sub-salt, salt-affected or gas-affected areas.
Our technology will help geophysical interpreters in all phases of the E&P chain from access through exploration, appraisal, development and production potentially saving hundreds of millions of dollars or more.
